Michel Legrand Remembered: Keep the Music Playing

20/09/2019 - 20/09/2019


Description

Pay tribute to the era-defining composer at an evening of jazz and cinema classics with the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra and special guests. With James Pearson at the helm, the Orchestra is joined by celebrated songstress Alison Moyet, multiple Olivier Award winner Maria Friedman, rising jazz star Richard Hadfield and renowned classical violinist Tasmin Little, and many more guests still to be announced. A three-time Oscar and five-time Grammy Award winner, Legrand’s unique ear for a memorable tune and his towering skills as a jazz pianist and composer are honoured in powerful arrangements of some of his greatest hits, including ‘The Windmills of Your Mind’, ‘Ray Blues’, ‘Summer of 42’, ‘The Umbrellas of Cherbourg’, ‘Dingo Rock’ and ‘Yentl’. Following Legrand’s death in January, this concert, which was to have been a celebration of his international standing as a jazz musician, now becomes a tribute to his everlasting impact on 20th-century music – unforgettable melodies imprinted on the history of jazz, song, and film music.
